Can you recommend a hotel in Birmingham?

Hi all,

My DH is going over to the motor show at the NEC next month and since we've never been to Birmingham, I was wondering if anyone knew of a good (but not massively luxurious) hotel convenient to the centre.

Any ideas girls?

I used to go on business and stay in the Birmingham Metropole which is a good standard large business hotel close to the NEC.

Never got to see the actual city before last weekend though!

Moor Hall in Sutton Coldfield v. nice. Health club with pool, golf course, nice bar and terrace with view of course. Rooms in the newer part are bigger.

I spent my wedding night there - its not massively luxurious - rooms fairly standard, but its got good facilities, convenient for NEC, nice location .

There's a Crowne Plaza inside the NEC. We stayed there about a month ago. Paid £100 for the room. We were only there overnight as we were flying the next day but we felt very comfortable there with DD (and DH was happy as they put rugby on in the bar!).

Across the lake from there, also inside NEC, is the Hilton. And there is a Novotel at nearby Birmingham airport. There is a skyrail link between the airport and the NEC.

Thanks everyone. I'll pass these on.

Is there no question that cannot be answered by posting it on Munsnet? Someday I'm going to post some deep philosophical question and see if we can't solve ALL the problems of the world (and not just all the problems of a lone Mammy in Ireland!!)

Not in Birmingham centre, but convenient for the NEC: the Manor Hotel at Meriden. In the centre, for something not too corporate business-travel style, I'd look at the Hotel du Vin , though the food certainly isn't cheap.
